  • Wiring Questions and Track Update.

    It’s been awhile since my last update. Today I finally installed all Lane Gates and each were tested per instructions. Took all the taps that were installed before and reinstalled them to new locations because of the Lane Gates. Yes, I triple checked and even taped the wires so I can identify which one is the outside and inside lane. Also, I Received a new Tek-Slot, and the old one is working fine after I reset the device per the developer instructions.

    Now, before I turn on the CU, is there a way I can check to make sure I have everything wired correctly? Lane Gates worked with the CU before I installed them to the track, just worried about the taps and the Lane Gates. Any ideas on how to test before I turn on the CU? I was thinking testing sections at a time?

    Once I turn on and test everything, it is elevation time, track paint, and scenery.

    One last thing, I’m going to name the track after my mother-in-law who is no longer with us. When I was taking down my routed track, I found the book she gave me on how to do scenery under the track. It was like she was there with me at that moment. I will use her initials ABK, just don’t know the second part. Raceway maybe?

    I did one last wire check, turned the CU on, and everything worked, no “Danger Will Robinson, Danger” from the CU. Checked all the Lane Gates, they are working. Also, I did do the modification to the lane Gates so they work well with Tek-Slot. I can finally move on to elevation and scenery.

      Glad everything is working out. We are showing our age when we admit know that phrase...
